This is why I stay out of Milwaukee.

300 shots were fired?

I mean, really.

Neighbors said they called police well before barrage of gunfire at Midtown

Multiple neighbors near Midtown shopping center told WISN 12 News they called police Sunday night about a large crowd gathered in the parking lot. They said police didn't respond until after gunshots rang out.

MILWAUKEE ó
Residents in the Capitol Heights neighborhood, next to the Midtown shopping center, said they called police before the barrage of gunfire to report a large crowd gathered in the parking lot. The neighbors said police did not respond.

About a dozen neighbors told WISN 12 News they called police to report a rowdy crowd in the vacant Walmart parking lot at Midtown Sunday night. Some said they called as early as 9:30.

At about 11:30, more than 300 shots rang out in the parking lot. Two people were injured.

On Monday, Milwaukee Police Chief Jeffrey Norman said no one had been arrested.

2. 300 shots and only two people injured?

Why would police respond to a large crowd assembled?

3. Hey, man! I have an idea. Why don't we make it even easier to get your hands on a gun?

What could possibly go wrong?

This is fricking insanity.

4. I'm more inclined to avoid rural areas, not cities.

This insanity can be directly attributed to how easy it is to obtain guns and ammo in this country.

5. So police shpuld show up to large gatherings?

I donít know why the police would show up unless they were doing something wrong. To watch them? To keep tabs on them? I do not get the concept that if people gather the police need to be there.
